Free Floating Music

Free Floating

Simplicity and repose are the qualities that measure the true value of any work of art.
–Frank Lloyd Wright

We should listen to the silence with the same attention that we give to the sounds.
–John Cage

Free Floating Music exists to release and promote serene, peaceful ambient music, music that grows out of and flows through the silence around it, sculpting spaces for reflection, repose and rejuvenation.

All music released through Free Floating Music is available for free download via Creative Commons non-commercial licenses.

This compilation is more than just music. It is a mission statement. As you will see on the website, there is a written mission statement for the label. While those words are an adequate description for what I intend the focus of Free Floating Music to be, words can only express so much. This is, of course, why there is music. And while this music doesn’t speak loudly, it does speak clearly. It speaks to us of the spaces where we can be free from the accelerated pull of the world. It writes...

For me this release by Mirada is a lesson in listening. In my initial listening to the work after I received it, I didn't really know what was going on in the pieces.  There seemed to me to be little to no movement.  I found them moderately interesting as atmospheres, but wasn't entirely moved by them. For a (brief) while I considered passing on releasing them through Free Floating.  I thought about sending Mark (Heath, AKA Mirada) to submit the work to the Complex Silence series or some...

I don’t know if there’s something in the water in Manchester or if his house is built above some sacred tomb of Arthurian knights, but I know that Brin Coleman (aka Bing Satellites) possesses some incredible source of musical power that goes beyond what I’m accustomed to. As I have been listening repeatedly to Twilight Sessions Volume Eight, I find it amazing that seven other volumes (totaling over 15 hours of music) have been released by Bing Satellites in little over a year. And this...

I don’t know what to say about Bing Satellites that I didn’t already say in the notes for the last album of his that I released. So I’ll keep it short and to the point….  It should be clear to all by now that I am a big fan of Bing Satellites (as well as the other moniker’s of the man behind the music, Brin Coleman). He is obviously adept at creating scintillating atmospheres of effortless simplicity that, at the same time, reveal even more beauty in their shimmering depths.  I am,...

The Sutra of the Heart of the Lady Perfection of Wisdom Thus have I heard. At one time Lord Buddha was staying at Vulture Peak Mountain in Rajagriha, with a great gathering of the monastic sangha and the bodhisattva sangha. At the same time, noble Avalokiteshvara, the bodhisattva mahasattva, was looking right at the experience of the profound perfection of wisdom and he saw the five groups to be empty of nature. Then, through the power of the Buddha, venerable Shariputra said to noble...
